I've got exactly the same setup (IE 5.5, Opera 6, Eudora) and don't have
this problem. Maybe there is a problem with default browsers. When my
default browser was IE, clicking links in Eudora would always launch IE.
Now it's Opera, and Eudora always launches that. So try resetting (or
unsetting and then setting) your default browser, and see if that helps.

Now -- my first tip!!

When writing code, always think about whether you can encapsulate any of it
in a generic, reusable function using parameters which you can pass to it
at runtime -- for example, connecting to a database or sending an email.
This saves time and effort and results in fewer bugs and easier maintenance.
